'analogy: the literary/screenwriting cliche of two individuals who carry out a chess game over a long period of time, pausing between moves to go about their lives. think of the scene in 'blade runner' between mr. tyrell and the guy from newhart.'

perhaps notably, in the film, neither character stops to ponder the structural "meaning" or "usefulness" of carrying out the game of chess in just such a fashion. the play is the thing.
